Can these socks be made without a double ended crochet hook? Can I make these using a regular tunisian hook? Could I also use a corded tunisian hook?

The technique used for these socks does require a double ended crochet hook. Because you are picking up loops with one end of the needle and working them off with the other, you can't use a regular Tunisian crochet hook. Here is a quick video on how to work Tunisian crochet in the round. It might make more sense if you can see how it is worked.
